It baffles me that anyone on earth would think that Hogan, Austin and Bruno aren't among the top 100 WWE performers

At least we got "Moolah empowered women" to replace "charity is the new PR" as the go to Steph-sounding-like-a-clueless-idiot quote.

"Thanks to the fans for making their voices heard!" after this tone-deaf, totally unforced error is a pretty strong contender too. That's wording and messages you would only devise if you've grown up hearing corporate-speak and the word "yes" for your entire life.
I really don't know why they bothered. I mean WWE probably knew about it so why change their mind over what a few fans think.
Its not like fans are going to change WWE's opinion on Roman.

Maybe we have different priorities but I think Moolah pimping out women, stealing their money, holding them back and ruining their lives is a much more egregious fault than Roman Reigns not getting over as a babyface in the way WWE initially wanted.

So I don't see EVERY tag team match on PPV and certainly not on TV but my impression is that the current WWE tag style peaked back during the Shield/Rhodes Brothers year, and it's just been greater and greater escalation since then. It's hallmark is that 2/3rds of the match is the finishing stretch with endless near-falls/break-ups and momentum shifts within that action-packed period. But again, I haven't seen enough to be sure about this. It's just a gut feeling. The Usos have had a lot of good/exciting matches within that formula, but it's not at all my favorite sort of tag match.

The Summerslam match vs New Day was a high end version of that formula but I think the Hell in a Cell vs New Day is worth checking out as something that goes beyond it and increases the violence for WWE 2017 standards. It's an incredible match.

Yeah, Mickie is still really strong in-ring nowadays. 


It would be interesting to see if Trish was willing to have a couple of one-off matches with some of the current women. The improvements she made during her own career, along with the limitations women were under at the time, make it an interesting 'what if?' as to how far she could've gone as a worker. It would obviously be difficult to expect something really high end out of her but she looked good in her spots at the Rumble so why not run Trish vs Sasha at Summerslam or whatever?

Trish Stratus Battle Royal wouldn't be that bad.

Ehh... Am I the only one who considers Trish wildly overrated? There were at least a 5-6 other women during her era who were better than she was IMO, and that's in WWE alone.
In the WWE narrative she was the respectable ace of women's wrestling from before the current era and the one (along with Lita) who all the women now looked up to. So even if you don't think she was the best worker or whatever she fulfils a certain role in WWE's presentation on their history.
